Yeah they just look waterlogged to me, my guys get like that every winter :) otherwise what loosie said about the hoof peeling, if your still worried about it I would call your farrier.

I wouldn't personally be worried though, unless of course your horse was going lame for whatever reason :)

Ringbone affects the bone, not the hoof. My QH had ringbone above her coronary band on her pasterns...looked like little golf balls.

Oh wow no she does not have that. I have my farrier coming Friday, due for a trim anyway. Thanks for the advice and tips from everyone! Really appreciate it
